About Material: UHMW (ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene) offers a combination of exceptional properties. This thermoplastic material is tough with superior impact strength. It is corrosion-resistant and exhibits virtually no water absorption. It is also wear-resistant, non-sticking and self-lubricating.
Mounting Notes: The black cylinder nuts go from top to bottom through the deck (so the low profile head is nearly flush with the deck top) and the screws goes in through the bottom -- tightening into the black cylinder -- similar to the way a typical lock nut would work. This hardware is extra strong like that so perfect for mounting the plates. Lay the plate on the deck surface you will mount to - mark the deck surface through the center of drill holes - and then drill for the size of the black piece (drill bit size is 7/32). Tip - Use a pointed screwdriver or similar to make a slight indention on each drill hole to have a start point for your drill bit to grab. With deck secure - drill straight through. When it's mounted - the top will be basically flush and the screw heads will be recessed in the drill hole countersink underside of the plate.
